A French fighter jet intercepts German tourist plane

Flightglobal.com has learned that a French fighter jet intercepted a small German tourist plane that failed to respond to air traffic controllers Thursday.

The event caused Paris Orly airport to close temporarily.

French defence ministry has said that the pilot was detained after it was forced to land at a military air base south of Paris.

It was a single-engine plane, with two people aboard. The plane took off from Germany heading for La Rochelle.

Does anyone know which aircraft were involved? Perhaps you could enlighten us about what happened.
